See what two reviewers think of this groundbreaking collection:
“The extent of the collections is truly outstanding overall, and individual collections range from a few hundred to a quarter million items. Archives of Sexuality and Gender is an unparalleled resource for access to primary source documents of concern to LGBTQ scholars and activists alike.”

“Archives of Sexuality and Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940, Part I is the first part of a planned four-part collection from Gale in the Archives of Sexuality and Gender (ASG) series for academic and public libraries. ASG is part of the Gale Primary Sources platform, using the strong search tools, facets, tagging and citation tools, document management, and image viewer available in all those products. Content is drawn from several important LGBTQ collections, including newspapers and journals, manuscripts, historical records, personal correspondence, government responses to the HIV/AIDS crisis, and illustrated works. The searchability, ease-of-use of this product, and reasonable price point make this an excellent addition for academic and public libraries in a growing area of research.”
